Hi! I’m Paula Herazo, the maker behind Nightly Crafter Shop. I live with my husband and my pup Toki in San Francisco, California, but I’m originally from Santiago, Chile, so my first language is Spanish.
Growing up, I was always interested in creating new things. I tried with beads and jewelry, clay, handmade paper, illustration, etc. You name it, I tried. But of course, over the years, there was a material that I never quit… yarn! Because it was always present in my day. My grandmother and my mother used to knit together. They made a lot of clothes; my mom used to do the arms of the sweater and my grandmother the body; they used to divide the work choosing their favorite part. That smart, isn’t it? They taught me how to knit and crochet, but I never was pleased with the knitting, so I select crochet, and the rest is history.
I have to be honest and tell you that some years I quit to crochet because I was a little bit lost with everything in my life. Still, I have never leave crafts or the maker movement, so now finally, when I think I’m okay, I decided to collect some of that journey here and share it with you, and I hope you like it.
About Nightly Crafter Shop
Nightly Crafter Shop born this 2020 like a rebrand from my old shop (Hina Palitah). In reality, I was never attached to the old name I just kept it, and the time passes with it, but now I wanted to make a change and selected some more adequate to me. I’m a night owl, so practically all my craft is my at night time, so here I am with my new brand.
The original shop was born in 2011 when I started to crochet like a form to distract me from my thesis for my bachelor’s degree. It was an escape from the stress, but I began to accumulate a lot of amigurumis, so I decided to start selling some stuff to do more space in my room for new things. Since there I’ve been playing with my shop and guessing what I want to do with it and I think there know now. Crochet patterns and amigurumis, like the protagonist and a few other crafts because I can’t choose just ONE thing. Can you?
Thank you so much for reading. ❤
